The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) is lower again today, setting up the potential for a second straight loss for the 30-stock index. Oil's reversal after Monday's gains is weighing on the market, as October crude futures slide 5.2% to $59.61 per barrel. The energy sector is underperforming as a result, though the S&P 500 Index (SPX) and Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) are still flirting with positive territory at midday. This all comes as the Fed begins its two-day meeting, with a decision on monetary policy to come tomorrow afternoon.
